Pilgrim are a band from Rhode Island that plays a very traditional and old school form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Misery Wizard" which was released by Metal Blade Records.
Drums are all slow playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that are in the traditional and old school doom metal sound with a good amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very 70's sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly clean singing doom metal vocals with a brief use of growls being utilized for only a few seconds on one song in addition there is a brief spoken word chant being utilized on the last song, while the lyrics cover Occultism, Fantasy and Dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound which captures the classic doom metal sound perfectly with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Pilgrim are a very great sounding old school traditional doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Astaroth" and "Masters Of The Sky". RECOMMENDED BUY.
